Linda Perhacs - Parallelograms dbl lp (Mexican Summer)


Supreme obscure femme psych/acid folk - definitive version of this? Heavy vinyl, download code, liner notes by the artist, limited to 1000! Totally great, recommended for the Brigitt St John, Vashti Bunyan, Sibylle Baier fan... but more psychedelic! WOW.

"Mexican Summer is beyond psyched to present a hefty, heavy gatefold edition of Linda Perhacs's lone album, Parallelograms. On the strength of this single album, recorded in 1970, Linda Perhacs remains a towering figure in the world of psychedelia, folk, female singer-songwriters, and acid-visionaries alike. Lauded by artists as diverse as Daft Punk, Devendra Banhart, Animal Collective, and Swedish metal band Opeth, in the 21st century, her album remains a testament to her singularity of vision. Ignored upon its initial release, Parallelograms seemingly sank without a trace, and Perhacs gave up making music for the next forty years. Psych fans the world over unearthed and began to obsess over this album in the meantime: a spine-tingling blend of crystalline vocal melodies from Perhacs, mind-expanding sound effects, and on the title track, one of the finest aural hallucinations ever captured, equal parts 'sound sculpture' and 'visual music.'" Deluxe gatefold, hand-numbered edition of 1000 copies, featuring a download coupon and 6-sided insert with new liner notes written by Perhacs in May, 2010.
